I love this B&B! I wish I could stay there all year round. Stephan and his team are wonderfully friendly and hospitable people. We walk through the door and we feel we are "home". The breakfasts are lovely & if weather is good you can sit over looking the sea in the garden. #HuisHaerlem is close to all Cape Town...

We stayed for three nights at Huijs Haerlem and we had a lovely stay. Stefan gave us a very welcome feeling. He is happy to help with planning your day and giving restaurant tips (walking distance) and information about the city and surroundings. We had a spacious room and all we need to have a good stay.

The breakfast, well I've never seen such variety of fruit (I honestly couldn't name half of them).

We have stayed last January for fifth time in this B&B as a start off for our roundtrips in South Africa. The rooms are somewhat dated, but very well equipped with all a tourist needs; beds are of outstanding quality, all rooms with perfect functioning Wi-Fi connection. The service is outstanding; breakfast, besides all kind of local products, can be...

Great location, comfortable and relaxed. We were there at Christmas and the owner really made it a special day for us. The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented with different choices of home bakes and fresh fruit each day. When one of our party was ill they were so helpful and even went out in the middle of the night...

Huijs Haerlem felt just like a home from home, the moment I walked in the door. The location in Seapoint is perfect, set on a quiet street, bedrooms with everything in them one could want, a beautiful house, with lovely Dutch furniture, the host Stefan, could not do enough for everyone, and his breakfasts, just superb. Nothing was too much...

We have absolutely no complaints whatsoever! Perfect location, quiet and peaceful yet close to the city, Waterfront and all the nice restaurants in Sea Point. Charming house and a secluded garden with a beautiful view. But above all: a great manager who made us feel very welcome. Stefan kindly offered to help us with car rentals, dinner reservations, tour bookings......

Stefan was really helpful in answering our questions and helping us to make arrangements about our trip. There is a stunning view into the ocean from the garden and it is a beautiful place to have breakfast or enjoy a glass of wine from the honesty bar in the evening. Our room (number 5) was very quiet and clean. The...

This guesthouse deserves being elected number one in town. We stayed there 4 nights . Very cozy atmosphere in a beautiful house nicely decorated. The small garden is full of charm, and the swimming pool is solar heated at 28°C.... delicious. Not the least noise nuisance. Breakfasts around the swimming pool are excellent and elegantly presented. Service is perfect efficient...
